Shakuju Therapy is a Japanese style of treatment that uses an instrument called a teishin instead of standard acupuncture needles. The teishin is a stainless steel (or silver) tool that is placed on the skin at various points on the abdomen and back to help focus and direct warmth (energy) into the body. This non insertive technique was developed by Kobayashi sensei in Japan and is a very powerful treatment that helps restore and balance energy in the body. This style of treatment is great for everyone, and is especially useful for those who may be needle sensitive.
A Shakuju treatment includes contact needling (i.e. no insertion of needles!) on the front and back with a pulse and abdominal diagnosis to indicate the specific course of treatment for you. By restoring the proper flow of energy in the body, a Shakuju treatment helps return the body to a state of health where it can then heal itself. What could be better than that!
